Basically, it's where you have so many profitable options to choose from and yet you just don't take the trade.

I know the promise of fast profits with trading sounds great and that this is the prime reason people are drawn to the world of trading.
But the flip side to fast profits are fast losses. What most people forget or ignore is that where there is high reward, there is always high risk.
And that's I want to bring to your attention today.

Normally at a company's end year function, they make a reservation at a restaurant and have drinks and dinner.
Not here at FSP, which is the company I work at.
The team decided to go to Sky Bar at Pineslopes in Fourways.
You can choose between a bunch of activities to do there.
Abseiling, Rock Climbing, Bungee Jumping or you can just chill, drink and eat at the Sky Bar.

Let's start your year on a profitable note.
I'm sure you hear how many people make resolutions when their year starts.
I want to lose 10 kilograms
I'm going on a lifestyle-change diet
I'm going to save 1/3 of my money this year
These are all great, but let's be honest. Most resolutions last around two months' tops, and then all is given up.

Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be introducing you to the popular casino game known as Blackjack.
Why Blackjack over Poker? Or even Roulette?
Well the simple answer is, it's the one casino game the house has the least control over the outcome.
It's also the game that can help you pocket a decent amount of money, in a short time.
For example, last week, I managed to turn R200 in... ››› more
Last year in almost every webinar I gave with Red Hot Storm Trader, I always spoke about where the ALSI 40 (All Share Index Top 40 Companies) was at.
Basically, the entire year I said that the index was going one way.
In fact, the ALSI40 started at 44,500 and ended the year at 44,500.
So you can say, the index went nowhere.
But the index has finally broken out of this side... ››› more

**Trade Alert: What to Invest in NOW**
After an almost meteoric rise in share price, this small cap's share price has come back to earth.
And it's time to buy again.
You see this share has fallen from an all-time high of R16.99 on 31 October 2016 to R10.60 where it is today.
That's a similar price to a year ago, where it rallied over 65% in less than 7 months. And it did a similar thing... ››› more

Maths is your best friend when it comes to sports betting, but I am not trying to scare you with trigonometry or the Analytic Continuation of the Factorial.

However, there are some mathematical equations worth knowing about, and some that are just plain crucial to the long-term success of... ››› more

Question by Limo Krafe:
Timon, you have no idea how depressed I am this past month.
I thought I'd try and invest in Bitcoin.
And I had everything ready for the trade of the century.
I had the strategy, the money, the account opened. But then I panicked and froze. I just didn't push that buy button to take the investment.
And today, I look at my account and I look at the Bitcoin chart,... ››› more
Let's paint a scenario.
You're at your computer, feeling “ready” to take on the financial market.
You see a trade has lined up and you're ready to buy a position.
You put in your trading levels and push the enter button, which get's you into your trade.
There's no going back.
All of a sudden…

Early in the week, I was waiting for a trade to line up. For the entire day, nothing lined up.
There was a moment where I felt trigger happy. I just wanted to take a trade for the sake of taking a trade.
I didn't have a plan for the trade, I just had this urge. You can say I felt a gambling mentality moment.
But because I've been in the market long enough to know better, I saved myself f... ››› more
“Timon why don't you be a man and risk 10% per trade?”
“I'm not going to get rich with risking 2% of my portfolio per trade, I'm sticking to 10%”.
I constantly get these snarky emails trying to convince me to change the way I trade.
I don't care about how amazing your trading strategy is.

However, they won't be from what I learnt from trading.
Instead, I'm going to post some lessons my newbie subscriber traders have learnt during their first month of trading.
Take the first lesson for example…

If you haven't noticed by now, I don't get influenced by what's HOT in the media.
Last week I spoke about my prediction, where I believe the rand will weaken to R16.80. If you missed it, you can look for the article "I was wrong".
If you search MoneyWeb.co.za, the Star and Business Day live ,you'll see the media is bombarding readers on why the rand is expected to weaken.
